Brunello 2015 – too perfect?

Andrea Costanti in Montalcino

Walter picks over what’s good and bad about this latest vintage. See his tasting notes on 127 regular bottles of 2015 Brunello di Montalcino. An assessment of Selezione bottlings follows tomorrow.

I am never one to immediately write up my assessment after a comprehensive tasting of any new vintage because I like to take my time to reflect, but I truly took my time with the 2015 Brunello vintage tasted at the beginning of January, because the rave reports of yet another vintage of the century from some quarters were not unanimously confirmed in my tasting of the wines.

Once again...
